Climate change affecting Earth's axis!

Dear Readers:

Seems all that melting ice in Greenland and Antarctica is slowly changing the spin of good ol' Mother Earth!

The North Pole had been situated in the remote northern part of Canada over near Greenland, but due to the melting ice (trillions and trillions of tons) it is now slowly moving more towards Europe.

Scientists estimate that one day in the not too far future the North Pole could be situated over London, England, and the sun would rise in the south and set in the north!

Now none of this is going to happen by next Tuesday folks, but we might want to hold off annexing the Turks and Caicos Islands as a winter retreat since that might one day be replaced by Inuvik!

Image for the news resultWell kids, according to the Perspective Research Department, Neanderthals were not particularly good looking and had a hard time getting a date with human women. (Remember, back in the cave-man days it was the Neanderthals who were referred to as "low life!")
